Let marriage be held in honor by all, and let the marriage bed be kept undefiled. (Hebrews 13:4 NRSV)
I remember a story of a sailor who brought his girlfriend to the local minister late on a Friday evening and asked that they be married. "That's fine," replied the pastor, "Do you have a marriage license?" The sailor hung his head. "We got to the courthouse too late," he replied. "It was already closed." The minister shook his head. "I'm sorry. I can't perform a marriage ceremony without a license." The sailor put a pleading expression on his face, "Couldn't you just say a few words to get us through the weekend?"

We all know that marriage involves much more than just a few words that were said at our wedding ceremony. A great marriage takes lots of commitment and a fulness of God's forgiving love.

What can you do today to recharge your marriage and your commitments?


God of commitments, thank you for being committed to me and give me the guidance I need to recharge my commitments. Amen.
